Technological changes have often produced important social changes that translate into spatial and planning practice. Whereas the intelligent city is one of the unavoidable and even dominant concepts, digital uses can influence urban planning in four different directions. These scenarios are represented by a compass composed of a horizontal axis opposing institutional and non–institutional actors, and a second axis with open and closed opposition.
1. Algorithmic urban planning or the return of experts.
2. Urbanism under the pressure of an extension of the domain of urban capitalism.
3. Wiki–urbanism looking for an alternative city.
4. Open–source urbanism by the renewal of the practices of the institutions of the development.
